Using the /Verbose Parameter

By default, only the result of an operation is reported. For example, if you use the join operation you see output similar to the following:

success: mywksta joined to mycompany domain

If you specify the /verbose parameter, the output lists the success or failure of each transaction necessary to perform the operation. For example, this time when you use the join operation, you see output similar to the following:

success: adding machine account for mywksta to mycompany domain
success: configuring lsa on mywksta
success: mywksta joined to mycompany domain

Using the /Reboot Parameter

The /reboot parameter specifies that the computer being acted upon by the specified NetDom operation is shut down and automatically rebooted after the completion of the operation. When you specify the /reboot parameter, the following message and a countdown timer display on the workstation screen, prior to the restart:
